Annual GIIN survey reveals dynamic and diverse impact investing market
Friday, June 8, 2018
The investors surveyed, who represent USD228 billion in impact investing assets, invested over USD35 billion into over 11,000 deals in 2017, and are planning to increase capital invested by 8 per cent in 2018.
Amit Bouri, CEO and co-founder of the GIIN, says: “To realise the GIIN’s vision for the future of financial markets, where impact is integrated into all investment decisions, impact investing must continue to grow and build on its success of the past decade.”
“The Annual Survey demonstrates there is significant momentum in the market and provides data and insights for investors to maximise their impact and ultimately tackle critical global issues such as access to education and healthcare, gender inequality, poverty, climate change, and more.”
